Phillip Carson "Phil" Crenshaw

26 years of age
Last year in Class of 1968:  1967

I was always amazed at how Phil struggled with epilepsy on a daily basis at school.  Phil was a kind fellow who left a lasting impression on me.  I also had a sister with epilepsy and I remember helping Phil when he would have a seizure at school.  Other classmates were frightened by his seizures and I'm happy that I was there to stand by him during many of these episodes.  I always admired Phil so much by his ability to continue his day surrounded by many who never understood what a great guy he really was.

From Lucy Gibson Walcher on February 21st, 2018
I will always remember Phil for his sweet spirit as he struggled with epilepsy during our school years.  
Having had a sister with this disorder, I always felt that God put me close by when Phil had a seizure and put me by his side and help him.  Not all students understood and were frightened by his seizures.  
When I think of special people in our class,  Phil is always one of the first to come to mind.  He was such a sweet young man.  He was and still is a sweet inspiration to me.  I treasured our sweet friendship while he was at CHS.

Ruby Nell Jenkins

- - June 8th, 1979

Graduate in Class of 1968

Ruby Nell was one of the brave girls who came to Chapman High from Bethune High in 1967 and led the very brave journey that began integration during this turbulent time in our nation.  
I always admired all these girls.  I know this time wasn't easy on them as some students didn't embrace their journey or a friendship they could have had with one of these amazing women.  
Ruby Nell was a really sweet girl.  I remember her fondly for her gentle, shy smile.

Jack was also connected to the class of 1967.
Jack was killed in combat during the Vietnam War.
Our gratitude to Jack for his unselfish service to our country.
When I think of the Vietnam War, Jack's name always comes to mind.  Many of his family were very close to my family throughout the years.  Gone but never forgotten.
I have visited the Vietnam Wall in Washington and found Jack's name.  Such a touching day for me as I remembered his family who will always miss him.

I had so much fun growing up with this sweet girl.  We had such a good time taking turns spending the night at each others houses.  
We even skipped school one time and I drovce us to Greer and ate hot dogs with one of her cute acquaintances that obviously skipped school too.  We never got caught for this shenannigan and we were both scared to death that we would be.  
We went to Aldersgate Methodist Church together and also grew up as neighbors.  
Cathy was one of the sweetest and most genuine girls in our class at CHS.
